This blue & white Irish Chain quilt was a wedding gift. The large white spaces gave a great place for some detailed hand-quilting, so I filled them with the pattern called “Lover’s Knot”
The stripe of white along the back lines up well with the rows on the front so that one row of the lovers knots are shown in the white on the back.
This is the first quilt I’ve done with multiple borders and I like the way the two blue and two white borders frame the quilt.
However, I wasn’t sure what I’d do on the corners for quilting. My husband found some inspiration for me on the cover of his bible.
The quilt is lap sized, 60 inches by 70 inches.
